5 Girls Intercepted on their way to the Gulf Region

nepal-storyNepal based project partner, 3AN, intercepted 5 young girls at the Captivating funded Bhxxxxawa checkpoint. They were in the process of leaving Nepal without any convincing purpose or paperwork and suspicians were raised by 3AN border control staff.  Following interception and investigation by police at the border, the local police requested that 3AN take them back to the 3AN/Captivating transit home [safe house] to observe and investigate the matter further.  After 5 days of food, investigation, phone calls and lots of encouragement, the full story became known.  All 5 girls were being sent by a sex-trafficking syndicate in Kathmandu to the Gulf region for “employment”. Thanks to 3AN and this work, these girls have been rescued from being trafficked into the sex industry.  They have since been reunited with their guardians with all family members educated on what almost happened, and warning signs to look out for to prevent it occurring again.

We continue to be so amazed by these stories and the incredible work of 3AN.  Thanks to incredible on-the-ground staff and willing donors supporting Captivating funded border stations with our two Nepal based project partners (3AN and Tiny Hands), on average 10 – 15 girls are being rescued every month from the horror’s of Human Trafficking through interception and rescue at Nepal borders.  We can do more.  If you are interested in financially supporting this work further, please contact andrewc@captivating.org. It costs on average US$100 to intercept a girl.  To the world you are one person – but to ONE GIRL you could be the world.
